A while ago, when I wanted to write a new test that required some
programming, I wrote it in Python because it's more commonly available,
generally more user friendly, easier to read, etc.  I forgot to document
the new dependency.  I've fixed that now.

In the long run I hope to rewrite the existing build-time Perl code into
Python, but it's not a priority.
